Topshop Lip Crayon in Powder Room

Topshop Lip Crayon, Powder Room £7.00

I can't even keep count of the times that I've swatched or picked up and put down a Topshop lip crayon, it's one of those things that I really wanted to try but never got round to buying (come on, we've all got them!) I actually ended up with this because it came in a Selfridges Beauty Box and it was a big part of the reason that I forked out for the festival box earlier in the summer.

Powder Room is a really bright, vibrant pink with a slight hint of peachiness in there somewhere making it a bit easier to wear. It's a matte finish and if I had to give this a rating from one to ten on its matteness it is off the scale! I don't know about you but when I've got something on my lips I want to apply it and forget it's even there while it carries on working its magic but with this lip crayon you can feel it all the time, it's so drying and chalky once applied. Now don't get me wrong, once it's on it looks amazing but it doesn't feel amazing and after a while I get that built up residue around the inside of my lips which I get quite conscious about because it looks bloody awful. This really does remind me of the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils as the formulas are very similar.

Powder Room isn't up on the Topshop website at the minute but I'm sure you'd be able to pick it up at a Topshop with a good sized make up stand. If your lips are prepped and primed this looks really nice on and it doesn't take a lot to build up good coverage it's just a shame that the formula lets it down but that's the nature of the matte lipped beast!
